Who will come out on top in F1's sprint event of 2024?

Red Bull

The next sprint race of the 2024 F1 season will be on May 4 in Miami; the second of six grand prix weekends to host a short-form race in 2024.

As with all sprint events this season, drivers will compete in an extra qualifying session on Friday after FP1 — otherwise known as the ‘sprint shootout’ — followed by a shortened race held on Saturday which encourages drivers to focus on pure pace over strategy. Eight points are awarded to the winner, down to a single point for the eight-place finisher

The new format has re-shuffled the order of sprint events across an F1 race weekend, with both qualifying and the shortened race taking place before any grand prix events, which retain their traditional Saturday (qualifying) and Sunday (race) schedules.

Max Verstappen and Red Bull look likely to retain their position as the best ‘sprinters’ in the field this year, despite failing to make the front row for the first sprint race of 2024 at the Chinese Grand Prix. The world champion struggled in a wet sprint shootout and started the race fourth, but was soon back in his familiar place at the head of the race, eventually winning by 13 secnds,

Last year, Verstappen won sprint events in Austria, Belgium, the US and Brazil. Team-mate Sergio Perez picked up a win in Azerbaijan and McLaren‘s Oscar Piastri scored a career-first victory in Qatar.
